Several helpful guides to places in Virginia have been published. Four of these are:

  • 1835: Martin, Joseph. A New and Comprehensive Gazetteer of Virginia, and the District of Columbia. Charlottesville: J. Martin, 1835. (Family History Library book 975 E5m; film 897469.)
  • 1969: Hanson, Raus McDill. Virginia Place Names. Verona, Virginia: McClure Press, 1969. (Family History Library book 975.5 E5h.)
  • 1971: Topping, Mary, et al. Approved Place Names in Virginia. Charlottesville, Virginia: University Press of Virginia, 1971. (Family History Library book 975.5 E2t; fiche 6051296.) This is not a comprehensive gazetteer, but it lists all place names that have been approved by the U.S. Board on Geographic Names.
